Cursive Tattoos

Hilary Duff


Hilary Duff added a new ink to her collection of inner-arm tattoos. The actress shared a photo of herself sitting in the chair at the parlor of Dr Woo, who inked her arm with the cursive lettering “Take Fountain” which refers to the Fountain Avenue.

The quote “Take Fountain” become famous after Bette Davis interviewed on a talk show and asked what advice she has for actors trying to make it in Hollywood, she responded: “Take Fountain”. Driving on Fountain Avenue rather than Sunset, Hollywood, or Santa Monica Boulevards is a well known shortcut through the Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles and it soon become a traffic advice.

Blac Chyna


Blac Chyna already had a tiny tattoo of her son King’s name, but now that she has two children she decided to get both of their names in large script letters on the sides of her hands. She gave birth to Dream Renée Kardashian, her daughter with ex-fiance Rob Kardashian, on November 10, 2016 and got the tattoos in December 2017 shortly after Dream’s first birthday.

The tattoo serves another purpose as well — Dream’s name sits atop the remains of her ex Future’s name, which she had tattooed back in October 2015. They had only been dating for about a month when she got the regrettable tattoo on a whim. She’s already had laser tattoo removal to lighten the old inking, but it can still be seen faintly underneath the new tattoo.

Maggie Lindemann


Maggie Lindemann has a quote in a script font on her upper back from the poem “Troll” by author Shane Koyczan. It says “turning freedom of speech into freedom of cruelty.” The poem is about how internet trolls are extremely harmful to their victims and trolling is not a game.

On her twitter, Maggie explained that the tattoo is an anti-bullying message, writing: “freedom of cruelty meaning bullying.” She has spoken out about the seriousness of bullying as well as her own experiences:

Sorry for getting in my feelings but when it comes to bullying it really gets to me. Bullying forever affects you. Those words never leave your head. People were so mean to me starting 5th grade. I was so desperate to be loved, people made a joke out of me. I just wanted to be loved. Someone almost burnt my house down and put plastic forks under my window and pads everywhere right after I had gotten out of treatment. I am strong now. I know my worth and I know I’m not that fragile little girl anymore. But some words really hit home. You just never know what someone has gone through. Always be kind. For anyone that has gone through bullying. I’m always here for you, it’s a real thing. It’s a scary thing

When Maggie was going through dark times, Shane Koyczan’s poems hit home. They resonated with her so much that she’s had two of them tattooed — the first is on her armShe got this tattoo in December 2016 from her favorite artist Romeo Lacoste, who does all of his cursive tattoos in his own handwriting. “Thank you @romeolacoste for always being the best at what you do,” Maggie wrote on her Instagram.
